TOOL | Compendium of Collective Impact Resources Part Four: Building Resilient and Sustainable Collective Impact Initiatives

Collective Impact, Tools

Collective Impact is a framework for addressing complex community dilemmas and is most effective when trying to move the needle at a population or systems change scale.  It is not a useful framework when the purpose of the collaborative effort is solely to deliver programmatic services or solutions.  One element of ensuring that your Collective Impact initiative has a meaningful effect on your community is to mindfully incorporate sustainability and resiliency into your approach.

This collection of resources focuses solely on building resilient and sustainable Collective Impact initiatives and in doing so, uncovers a variety of articles, tools, webinars and videos.  The resources bridge different perspectives from building non-profit sustainability to understanding what funders consider when investing in Collective Impact.
